I found this thread after a google search. I realize it isn't current but I would like to share my experience with PCOS in hopes that it may be helpful for some women. I struggled with PCOS for years. I was prescribed metformin but I had to stop it because I couldn't get past the constant feeling of nausea. I was desperate to try anything because the way I felt affected every aspect of my life. A year ago I stumbled on some research that proposed a natural solution for PCOS. I thought well meds haven't worked so I thought I would give it a go because I needed to do something to loose weight too. The article explained to me that my increased insulin levels stimulate the production of androgens which causes an imbalance in reproductive hormones, therefore, leading to PCOS. My Doctors have always recommended that I loose weight but never informed me that doing so can restore my insulin balance, decrease testosterone production and restore my balance of estrogen, hence, improving ovarian function. I adapted to a complex carb, no sugar, no gluten diet with only healthy fats and lean proteins. I incorporated dietary supplements that were suited for me and yoga. It didn't happen overnight, but soon I shed pounds, had less pain, regular periods and more energy. The PCOS diet article from detoxscientific helped me get back to my old self. I wish you all the best of luck, PCOS is a battle that can be won with the right technique.
